 Hi All

I'm working for Freescale Semiconductor on the i.MX series linux BSP.
Now we have android running well on i.MX515 platform, and hope to push
android kernel repo into android.git.kernel.org.
Then what's the process need us to follow? How reviews will be done?
And what we should provide?

Can anybody kindly answer the questions, and give any suggestion?
Thanks.

 This question is more likely to get answered on the android-kernel
mailing list.

 Or the repo mailing list. But before you ask them, read this:

You can't push to other people's git trees, why would you want to do this?


Patches showing the changes you want made would be helpful :)

thanks,

HOWTO push kernel repo into android.git.kernel.org?

 Hi Greg

Sorry for confusing you. Actually our company, Freescale now wants to
put i.mx series kernel supporting android to android.git.kernel.org.
Just like the git: qualcomm kernel/msm.git and TI kernel/omap.git, we
would like to create kernel/imx.git.
Then we want to know how to make effort to create kernel/imx.git on
android.git.kernel.org?

 Hi,



I would like to understand why there is a kernel branch for each 
architecture.
I suppose that the only change are driver/architecture depends so maybe 
there
are few patches that support the architecuture or I miss somenthing?

Regards Michael

You mean OHA? Freescale has not joined OHA yet.

Then why there's kernel/omap.git here? If patches are all in mainline,
it will not need a separate tree.

How about our kernel patches for android porting? Seems there's no
proper repo for us to push.

Thanks all for your views.
Freescale really needs to build a public repo firstly, actually we're
making effort on this.
Before we can join OHA, I think public repo with local manifest is a
good solution.

I like Freescale doing that. May I know if the MX515 Android port is
fully completed?

Thanks
Eric

1. Apostrophe question

Hi all!

Some question regarding apostrophe as part of string-array items.

I have string array defined as following:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<resources>
<string-array name="my_arry">
        <item>Men's info</item>
        <item>Dummy info</item>
</string-array>
</resources>

In code I'm getting the values into string array
String my_array[] = this.getResources().getStringArray
(R.array.my_array_id);
String myFirstString = my_array[0];

The displayed myFirstString is  - "Mens info" without apostrophe.

I changed it to following using ascii code
<string-array name="my_arry">
        <item>Men&#39;s info</item>
        <item>Dummy info</item>
</string-array>

Same result.

Thanks in advance,
Evgeny

2. Problem getting the width of the root view.

Hi,
I am trying set the height of the button in a view using the width of
the window (basically i am trying to create square buttons). For this
i am calling the getRootView().getWidth() on a view specified in the
layout xml file. Now the problem is that this thing works fine the
first time the application is deployed. getWidth() returns the right
height. But when i close the activity and recreate it i get the width
as zero. So from second launch onwards  the height of the buttons gets
all messed up.

 Any clues what the reason might be and how to fix this?
